I totally agree, it's a serious upgrade in comfort. I also put the pads on today. It was a bit of a struggle getting them on, but they're the perfect size for the MH463 and they definitely improve the comfort a lot. Preliminarily I'd say they also make the bass a bit more punchy and present on the few pieces I listened to with them (Nas; Mobb Deep; Yo-yo Ma; Medeski, Martin & Wood; and John Coltraine were the artists). Either way, they definitely upgraded these headphones nicely. Thanks again Cash and Cash's mom for these pads. Worth the $13 if you own these headphones for sure.

Just got these myself. Burning them in b4 impressions. I'm just not sure why ppl say these creak or have bad build quality. I think they are pretty nicely made for the price... love the satisfying clicks on the size adjustors.

The creaking is when you move your head when you have them on. Mine was super-noticeable, but maybe I just got a poorly made set.

I have experienced no creaking with mine while they are worn. When removed and turning the cups to lay flat, it exists but is fairly mild (nothing obnoxious enough to make me bust out the WD40).

 

The [p]leather pad on the headband compresses very easily on my pair (almost exactly the same way the stock ear pads did). Is this normal for everyone else too?

Yes, but the headband on mine seem pretty comfortable.

No, you are fine. I have bought two sets of this, one for me one for my friend. The creaking is as you said, super-noticeable. But considering its price and SQ, I can live with it. It is without any doubt, an amazing headphone. Giving it a better pad, better build quality, and a price tag like $300, it will be a qualified competitor in that price range. For $30-50, it is the single HIFI headphone with the best price to value ratio you can get nowadays.

...except for the EFi-82 MT. wink_face.gif

The Uptownshave a hotter treble and boomier bass. After switching between the EFis and the Uptowns, the Uptowns sounded a bit "livelier", but also sort of slow and boomy. The EFis are easier to drive, also (and don't have that wretched volume controller that does nothing but cause channel imbalance).

 

 

Hey Cash! I read the above again, and I need clarification on the Uptowns. I can understand the "boomier bass". But I don't understand "hotter treble". I am fairly sensitive to that, and I find that the S500 treble can verge on "hot" at times, but I have never felt that way with the Uptowns. So possibly I don't understand what you are meaning.

 

More to the point, how are you still feeling about the EFi-82MTs and the MH463s?

The Uptown treble was a tiny bit emphasized to me, but not nearly as much as the S500. The Uptown is like the S500, but mellowed out in the treble and bass a bit. The EFi-82 MT is like the S500, but really mellowed out in the treble and bass (this is a neutral set).

I still prefer the EFi-82 MT, but both are excellent and worth owning. The MH463 has a very Sennheiser-ish sound signature: neutral overall, but with a bit of a veil. The EFi is more like a neutral JVC HA-S500. Both are excellent, but given the choice, I'd pick the EFi.

Thanks - that explains quite a lot to me. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want the veiled sound (got my PX100-II's for that lol). I'm not 100% sure if I would want the EFi "more neutral" sound either because I am not sure what that sounds like. I need to test out some phones (or get to a meet) I think. Or for the price of the EFi, I'm just tempted to take that gamble and just get it...

 

Are you using the stock pads on the EFi?

It's not a super-noticeable veil with the MH463, it's just there. The high mids are bright and shiny, but the treble just isn't. Both sound wonderful, but play off of each other kind of weirdly. Still, at $50 (or even at $190-$220), this is a marginal gripe.

I have used both the stock pad and the HM5 pad, and though the HM5 pad is a bit more comfy, they both sound about the same and neither causes any issues.

Million dollar question- which sounds like hd25? Efi or 463?
Hd25 is best sound i ever have heard. Balanced with great bass.
I have heard both hd595 and hm5- didnt like them at all. Ckm500 and mh1c for me sounds better.
Which is more comfortable? I already have m50 pads in home.

EFI is more comfortable. It sounds a bit like the HM5...but with better bass extension and slightly louder bass response (picture the M50 bass on the HM5 and you basically get the sound of the EFis). 

The 463 is more veiled. It's not a bad thing, but it's a very Sennheiser-ish sound (not in the HD-25 way, but in the "Sennheiser Audiophile" way).

Jeez...

Sounds like I should be getting these phones! Haha!

So I really liked my beloved HTF600s, are you saying that these EFI are much much better?

I also love my bass, especially the sub-bass. Can this do the job?
I'm not using it for portable use, just the casual game, but mainly listening to music.

 

If I were to get the EFI, which earpads would be the best for them?

Thanks heaps!
